Abstract

Since the late 1990s, Europe's satellite television landscape has been transformed, with European populations of non-European heritage increasingly watching television channels in their own languages. After surveying recent academic work on diasporic communication, multiculturalism and representation, this article examines examples of Euro-Arab interaction over Arabic-language satellite channels in the period 2003—6, exploring the evolving dynamic between symbolic and territorial power.
